Preheat oven to 450°. Using a paring knife, make 8 tiny slits on top of each potato, about 3/4-inch deep and just wide enough to fit a bay leaf and garlic sliver. Place bay leaves and garlic slivers into slits. Sprinkle with 2 teaspoons sea salt. Spread remaining sea salt on a 9 x 9-inch pan. Place potatoes on top and roast until tender, about 1 hour.
Remove potatoes from oven and drizzle with olive oil. Discard bay leaves before eating.
